Some LR doggin with XP's

Even though the weather has not been hospitable the past two days here me and a buddy and member here decided to do some LR pd'ing with specialty pistols. LR cartridges were 6mm-6.5x47 Lapua rear grip XP and my center-grip 7mm Dakota. Quite a few near misses @ 1400-1600 yards with both and I was fortunate enough to connect on a dog @ 1454 yards. Ranging was done with a military rangefinder (Wild) and then reconfirmed with GPS.
We were shooting off of a Hart portable bench using Harris BR bi-pods.
When I set up for distances @ 2k out to 2200 yards we couldn't see hits even with his Leica spotting scope. Grass was to high combined muddy conditions. It was a good way to start the doggin season though. Temps were in the 30's with the wind running around 12 mph when I nailed the dog.
Good start to the doggin season.
Anyone else been doing any doggin this year?

It's hard for me to fathom hitting something that small at that distance in those conditions with a rifle let alone a handgun.

I agree with Len. I don't think I could do that with a rifle, particularly with the winds involved.

That was some nice shooting I got a little excited when that dog went flying in the air.
